We have created a range of pre-configured, or “Thematic Surveys”, that provide the ability to gather data on important themes, such as Health, Bullying and School Safety, or Student Engagement. This feature was designed for administrators or researchers who are looking for in-depth reports in those domains. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to gain insight on a particular topic, these Thematic Surveys already have the appropriate measures chosen for you, so you can jump right ahead to administering the survey. If desired, a limited number of supplemental measures or questions can also be added to each of these surveys. The findings are delivered in a comprehensive four-page PDF report, which also includes a literature overview.
While assuring complete anonymity, data can be gathered on the topics of student mental health, nutrition, healthy weight, and risky behaviours like smoking and alcohol use. This survey is designed for grades 6 and up.
In this focused 12-minute survey, school-level data is collected on bullying and school safety. Administrators are able to determine the type of bullying that is occurring in the school, where and when it occurs, how students respond, how safe their students feel, and other useful information to help with school improvement planning. This survey is designed for grades 6 and up.
With leading-edge indicators on social, institutional, and intellectual engagement, administrators are able to gather powerful data from a new realm of research. Rather than making decisions based on hunches, or on feedback received from a small group of students in a school, administrators will have a reliable report that quantifies the findings. This survey is designed for grades 6 and up.
School Completion – Coming September 2012
All children have a certain probability of completing school, which depends on a complex set of factors associated with their family background, academic achievement, engagement, behaviour, and the learning climate of their school. This survey provides reliable measures of these principal factors, which can be conceived as “assets” that children acquire as they progress through school.
The survey uses a specific grouping of measures to make predictions about the likelihood of students completing school. This allows administrators to identify specific populations of at-risk students and gain a deeper understanding of the factors contributing to drop-outs at their school. This survey is designed for grades 6 and up. For more information, see School Completion.
